libinput 1.12.2 is now available

We have a bunch of quirks along with some improvements on touchpad thumb
detection and a crasher fix, so if you're looking for adrenaline spikes,
this is not it.

The Lenovo x220t and x60t don't disable the keyboard in tablet-mode anymore,
and button debouncing is now disabled on VMware virtual devices (because if you
need debouncing, you need it on the host). The Wacom Intuos Pro PTH-660 palm
threshold was restored to the original value, it was changed accidentally.

As for thumb detection: libinput now assumes that you only have one thumb
per hand, which is a statistically well-supported approximation.

A 2-finger movement out of the software button area now will no longer
trigger spurious pointer motion events if one finger exits the button area
before the other one.

And finally, the Wacom Intuos Pro PTH-660 when connected over bluetooth
sometimes caused an invalid event sequence that caused libinput to lose
track of the tap counter which again triggered an assertion later.

As usual, the git shortlog is below.
